New Year and some New Classes!

It’s been an exceedingly busy January for me, teaching 17 students at North Bennet Street, shooting an article for Fine Woodworking (out in April) and designing an exciting settee for some clients. I am also adding some new classes for the year. You can check them out on my site and enrollment begins on Jan 29th at 8 am. I’ve added

A turning intensive in June

A Continuous Arm Class in August

TWO classes with Bern Chandley and me in Sept and Oct

and a Comb Back in December.

I also now have a couple of slots in the side chair class in June open for enrollment immediately.

All of this will take place in my new workshop at the mill, it’s more than twice the size of the last one. It didn’t take long to outgrow the old shop, but it served me very well as I got the ball rolling. Now we will have plenty of space to do our work and an afternoon light that is truly inspiring.


This light has really kept me hustling in the late winter days!

I’ve been working on a special settee with a former student, Aspen Golann. She is about to graduate North Bennet Street and brought in a great commission for us to scratch our heads over. Here is a drawing of the curved, fan back settee.


The article that I wrote for Fine Woodworking is on my curve legged stool. It’s one of my favorite designs and I am happy to get it out there. I am working with my former student, Jeff Lefkowitz (who does plans for Curtis as well as others), to make some plans that will be ready sometime in March or April.


As you can tell, I am excited for the new year, new classes and all that is going on, I hope to see you at the shop or at Fine Woodworking events in Tampa and Southbridge!
